Rising Stars : The Winners!


We are happy to say we had some sincerely amazing work to sift through this year. Choosing just four artists to represent our Muddy Colors Rising Stars for 2017 was exceptionally difficult.

These four Artists will receive free exhibition space at the next Spectrum Fantastic Art Live, hanging literally right alongside other Muddy Colors Artists. In addition to the free booth space, each artist will also receive a $100 cash bonus to help them print business cards, posters, or whatever else they may need. ( I would like to extend a VERY special 'Thank You!' to all of our Patreon supporters who made this cash bonus entirely possible. We are trying hard to put your funds to the best use possible.)

So with that said,
our Muddy Colors Rising Stars for 2017 are...



Kai Carpenter





Kirbi Fagan





Daria Theodora





Reiko Murakami





We had a jury of 10 Members look through the work submitted. Each artist could receive a maximum of 10 votes, one from each judge. There were so many fantastic artists that really did miss out by just a vote or two.

So we would like to take a moment to recognize some other very notable Contenders...

1st Runner Up: Nicholas Elias





Honorable Mentions:

Top Row (L-R): Bernard Lee, Kaysha Siemens, Steven Hughes, Hilary Clarcq
Bottom Row (L-R): Johan Grenier, Kimonas, Colin Boyer

  12. Hello,
    I Read the article of a very great spell caster and it seems very helpful to me. I haven’t had the chance to have a proper relationship with my ex because we work together. This will be the final week or work and then I wont be around him constantly. Unfortunately, I broke one of the rules in the article and have been sleeping with him. Something I’m
    not proud of, especially since he has a girlfriend. Not to mention that she’s a girl he dated off and on for 3 years before he dated me.
    When I asked him why he kept sleeping with me even though he was in a relationship, his response was because I wanted it, and he wants me to be happy. But obviously what would make me happy would be to have him all to myself. That was when i read about dr alexzander on how he help people in saving their relationship and i was really despirate for his help. There were things in our relationship that were tough. We traveled for 4 months right in the beginning, and it was hard due to different expectations. When we returned our living situation was unstable which caused a lot of stress on my end. And when I ask why he didn’t give me a chance to make things better he said he gave
    me tons of chances. Oh, and he compared our relationship with his past. He says that things were great, and then they went bad really fast, and thats why his back with his ex. Because it at least took them years for things to get that bad. So i was very sad and disappointing and decided to contact this spell caster for help with tears running out of my
    eyes and Dr alexzander promised to make things right in my relationship and also assured me that my boyfriend is going to come back to me within 78hrs. At first i was shock and didnt believe him because i thought it was impossible to do. But i gave it a try and trusted him. Dr alexzander asked for my details and his, then guarantee me of his return. Truely my ex lover started calling me and also begging me to forgive him and that's his willing to give us a second chance, then promised me never to love any other woman apart from me. it all seem like a miracle to me till now. Dr alexzander. Words can't express how i feel right now. it been 2 month now since you casted that love spell for me and
    nothing have gone bad between us. his now caring more than ever and also the loving kind of Man i have ever wanted for myself in life. I thank you Dr alexzander for saving my relationship. Indeed you are the best. I want to use this media to share my testimony for the whole world to see and know that there is still hope in your broken relationship, No matter how bad it seems don't give up hope and also contact this man who saved my own. you can reach him through his website address http://alexzanderhightemple-com.webs.com or contact him direct with his email address alexzanderhightemple@gmail.com. I thank you dr alexzander for helping me and i will always share my testimony in every social media or place i may go to.
